In 1890 & 1892, Harry Fielding Reid traveled to Glacier Bay, Alaska. During the expedition, Reid mapped Glacier Bay, collaborated with John Muir, measured the movement of the glaciers, created sketches and made photographs of the glaciers, and produced 24 notebooks.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) has transcribed these expedition notebooks, so you can follow along with Reid's expeditions and experience Glacier Bay as he saw it over 100 years ago!
Journal I : Expedition to Glacier Bay, Alaska, Summer 1890
Sunday. Rain all day. We have calculated some more triangles, darned stockings etc today. Mr. Cushing and I put on our oil-skins, and walked up to the ice-front for exercise. Morse and Casement took the cause and went down the inlet, not withstanding the rain.
